Love Drunk is a powerful tool for educating young people about consent in teenage relationships. Powerful because it uses humour and themes relevant to young people to engage them around this tricky legal concept. The audience are involved, entertained, and almost without noticing it, educated.
Love Drunk is a fast-paced, action-packed theatre performance that deals with youth culture and relationships.
Within this context drug and alcohol abuse, racial tension and sexual assault are explored.
This is a great production to provide young people with educational arts opportunities and promote respectful relationships within the wider community.
The show is suitable for students in years 9 to 12. Phunktional recognises that you have a working knowledge of your students and their capacity, and are best placed to decide which year level can see the show.
Love Drunk’s Unit of Work provides teachers with the tools to comprehensively explore the Respectful Relationships themes that underpin Love Drunk and support young people’s ongoing learning.
The students were spellbound – The performers were able to give messages that were far more effective than any teacher could deliver in class.
The strength of Love Drunk can be seen in the level of student engagement. These programs can be considered very useful tools for schools to use to complement their health and well-being curriculum.
